Non-Linear Structural Modeling covers the basics of non-linearities in the Finite Element Method (FEM), considering static and stability (buckling) analyses, and practical application thereof applied to both aerospace and non-aerospace examples. Special emphasis is put on the implementation of these non-linearities in a FEM model and any issues that might arise from incorporating these.
The lectures are followed by a set of computer assignments, designed to enable students to apply the theory discussed in the lecture to a real world problem.
At the end of the course the student will be able to explain the background behind non-linear Finite Element Methods and be able to apply non-linear FEM to practical engineering problems using an open source Finite Element package.
